Former Superior Court judge dies

David Foscue was an expert horseman and active in local theater.

Former Grays Harbor Superior Court Judge David Foscue died Monday night and flags at county buildings on Grays Harbor have been lowered to half staff in his honor.

Foscue, a resident of Montesano, was known as an expert horseman and for his acting with the Driftwood Theater in Aberdeen.

He was a former city attorney for Aberdeen and served on the Grays Harbor bench for at least a decade, starting in the 1990s. He was a colleague of judges Mark McCauley and Gordon Godfrey.

Grays Harbor County commissioners held a moment of silence for Foscue at Tuesday’s meeting. Flags at county buildings will continue to lowered for a time yet to be determined.
